Rain ~ Tornado ~ Grandson Jack ~ Martini Bay Restaurant ~ Steak/Mac & Peas ~ Brusier ~ TV Shows

Good 45º cloudy drizzly morning.
Yesterday it rained light on and off. Stayed in the low 50ºs. We ended up with another 1/4". Sun shown through a couple times, but for the most part is was terminal gloomy~!

This is something else, this guy continuing to mow even though a tornado is so close. He's a nut!!!

May 31st my grandson Jack had his high school graduation. Brian and I were flying down to attend but a glitch with his employee kept him and me from going. We both felt bad.
His graduation from Gabrilieno High School was at the Santa Anita Race Track.

Being the awesome drummer he is, he received the John Phillip Sousa Band Award!

Since we couldn't go down to the graduation we are flying him up here this summer for some rafting on the Rogue, Jet Boat Ride, and whatever else is fun.

If you have been to Havasu City or going to go there I was watching a Cooking Channel Show called Beach Bites with Katie Lee.
 She went there and then ate at the Martini Bay Restaurant....

This place looks fabulous and so does their food. If you go there, let me know what you think.

Historically this date....

1944 – USS Missouri (BB-63) the last battleship built by the United States Navy and future site of the signing of the Japanese Instrument of Surrender, is commissioned.
I was born the day the peace treaty with Japan was signed aboard. My Brian served as a Marine in the Gulf War aboard the Missouri!

1955 – Eighty-three are killed and at least 100 are injured after an Austin-Healey and aMercedes-Benz collide at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the deadliest ever accident in motorsports.

1970 – After being appointed on May 15Anna Mae Hays and Elizabeth P. Hoisington officially receive their ranks as U.S. Army Generals, becoming the first females to do so.

And births this date include....

1933 – Gene Wilder, American actor (d. 2016)

He didn't age well.

1936 – Chad Everett, American actor (d.2012)

1945 – Adrienne Barbeau, American actress

.....delivered a package to her back in the '70's, when I worked for UPS. She was a real beauty in person, even with no makeup!

1956 – Joe Montana. American football player

Later I re-hydrated some peas (because I didn't have any frozen or canned), cooked mac and cheese, added in the peas and cooked a filet (Omaha Steaks) PERFECTLY in the air fryer!

Accompanying the mac & peas were artichoke hearts, the steak, and wine!

While I was in the kitchen cooking, Bruiser was out and about!

After dinner it was a few of my favorite shows... Rookie Blue, Blue Bloods, and My Cat From Hell...
Rookie Blue has ended but I watch the reruns, of course Blue Bloods is continuing, and Cat from Hell with Jackson Galaxy is very interesting how he can work with making problem cats happy cats! He is quite unique..... like Cesar Millan the dog whisperer! (Another fav show!)
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.
